My name is Scott Klein
I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago IL, and have spent almost all of my life here so far. As a high school student I studied all aspects of mechanics and woodworking including: building construction, woodshop, automotive technology, small scale 3D design, electricity, and plumbing. Naturally, I am always looking for ways to sharpen and perfect my talents. After High school, I worked for 6 years in various trades doing painting, construction, and remodeling.
By chance one night my girlfriend and I were visiting her father, who was a good friend of Alex Florov. He introduced me to Alex’s website and through the night (and following weeks) I studied his work and determined I had a deep interest in attempting this great feat. Shortly after my initial mind blowing view of this I got in contact with Alex, and being a very generous and inspiring man, he agreed to teach me to make pipes from the beginning to end of the process.
As I got to skip the initial trial of pre-bored/assembled pipe kits, I have been lucky to jump right in to hand: turned, milled, and assembled pipes. This has given me a lot of free play to work and develop my artistic ability. All of my pipes are made from 100 percent raw materials, completely handmade in the USA.
For now, my high grade pipes are stamped with my handwritten initials SK, and all pipes will receive a grade, A, B, C.

A very nice pipe. The refurbishing work is second to none - the pipe indeed looks as new. Also the shipping service (via FedEx) has been without any problems with very good information along the way. I have bought estate pipes from Neatpipes.com before (and since) and it will certainly not be the last time I shall look for new or estate pipes from you.

Once again, I received a lovely estate pipe from Neatpipes.com - I could not be happier with the appearance, refurbishing and general quality of this Ascorti pipe. As a very friendly gesture from Neatpipes, a small booklet - 'The Five Laws Of Pipe-Companioning' - was included in the shipment. Look for your next estate pipe at Neatpipes.com. You will not be disapponted.
